dang u must be pretty rich, ur lucky man build while u have money i guess thats looking awsome though


Not rich, I worked my butt off for 6 months to lift my Liberty- all my own money. Sold that and bought this for a great price so now i have a little extra mod money in the bank. After that runs out, its back to mowing lawns :shock: I fund just about every mod i do myself. My dad chipped in some money for new spark plug wires and new engine oil when we first brought her home, but that's the extent of my Parents Jeep pockets.

By radius, do you mean sorta mini skid the back half so rocks slide over instead of catching?

Grind the bottom rear corner off of the lowest rear point of the bracket that the lower arm is attached too

Looks good. How far out can your tires stick out past the fender where you are?

The trip got canceled :( Its supposed to sleet and snow here tomorrow, so we decided to try and go some other time. I may try and hit up the local wheeling spot to flex out and figure out my bump stop situation.

I live about 15 minutes from Little Elm and the lake, hope y'all had a good time, it was a good time to go camping- the weather has been pretty nice.
